If you need to go back to a previous MPC software version due to OS incompatibility or bugs, these are the direct download links from Akai's own site, previously published on the MPC Software product page as the 'MPC 2 Trial'. Without a serial number and iLok activation code these are just trial versions and will emit noise every few seconds.
